Production of the 'Self' in the Digital Age
This book investigates the relationship between the self and screen in the digital age, and examines how the notion of the self is re-negotiated and curated online. The chapters examine the production of the self in postmodernity through digital platforms by employing key concepts of ubiquity, the everyday, disembodiment and mortality. It locates self-production through ubiquitous imaging of the self and our environments with and through mobile technologies and in terms of its `embeddedness' in our everyday lives. In this innovative text, Yasmin Ibrahim explores technology's co-location on our corporeal body, our notions of domesticity and banality, our renewed relationship with the screen and our enterprise with capital as well as the role of desire in the formation of the self. The result is a richly interdisciplinary volume that seeks to examine the formation of the self online, through its renewed negotiations with personalised technologies and with the emergence of social networking sites.

Storytelling Industries: Narrative Production in the 21st Century
This book shows how the unique characteristics of traditionally differentiated media continue to determine narrative despite the recent digital convergence of media technologies. The author argues that media are now each largely defined by distinctive industrial practices that continue to preserve their identities and condition narrative production. Furthermore, the book demonstrates how a given medium's variability in institutional and technological contexts influences diverse approaches to storytelling. By connecting US film, television, comic book and video game industries to their popular fictional characters and universes; including Star Wars, Batman, Game of Thrones and Grand Theft Auto; the book identifies how differences in industrial practice between media inform narrative production. This book is a must read for students and scholars interested in transmedia storytelling.

The Librarian's Guide to Homelessness: An Empathy-Driven Approach to Solving Problems, Preventing Conflict, and Serving Everyone
Homelessness is a perennial topic of concern at libraries. In fact, staff at public libraries interact with almost as many homeless individuals as staff at shelters do. Empathy and understanding, along with specific actionable advice that's drawn from experience, makes all the difference in working with this group. In this book Dowd, executive director of a homeless shelter, spotlights best practices drawn from his own shelter's policies and training materials. Filled with to-the-point guidance that will help front line public library staff and managers understand and serve this population better, this resource includes facts about homelessness every librarian should know; debunks widespread myths about these individuals, explaining how they see themselves, what issues they struggle with, and how libraries can shift towards supporting them; shares de-escalation techniques like showing respect, ways to avoid making things personal, and using proper body language; walks readers through dealing with common issues like a sleeping patron, questionable hygiene, offensive behavior, and asking a patron to leave; and advises on how to provide backup to a colleague and when to call the police. Filled with real life stories that illustrate the effectiveness of Dowd's approach, this one-of-a-kind guide will empower library staff to treat homeless individuals with dignity.

Re-envisioning the MLS: Perspectives on the Future of Library and Information Science Education
At the heart of any discussion about the future of libraries is the future of librarians-and how well our instructional programs, especially the Master of Library Science (MLS) degree, prepare them for their careers. Building on the Re-envisioning the MLS initiative from the University of Maryland's iSchool and the Information Policy & Access Center (iPAC), this book continues the critical conversations around preparing future librarians. Library and information science (LIS) programs are the foundation of librarianship, and their design requires input from everyone in the field-from academics designing programs and courses, to practitioners reflecting on how prepared (or unprepared) they are to serve their communities, to hiring authorities considering qualifications of candidates. The second installment of this two-part volume explores many of the challenges and opportunities inherent in the future of the MLS degree, including the changing nature of the communities that libraries serve and how LIS education should address these changes, how archival training must accommodate big data, the specialized skill sets librarians need on the job, and how best to prepare librarians for their role as educators. These conversations will never be fully resolved, as LIS education must continue to evolve to ensure the efficacy of libraries and the librarians at the heart of the work.

'Paling's deftly drawn vignettes are frequently funny, sometimes sad and occasionally troubling ...Borrow a copy from your local library, if you still have one. Better yet, buy it' Neil Armstrong, Mail on Sunday 'Not only was I captivated by Paling's lovingly wrought series of pen portraits, I was amused, moved and - perhaps most surprising of all - uplifted' John Preston, Daily Mail 'There are many detractors who question whether libraries are still relevant in the digital age. Paling's keenly and kindly observed account of his encounters offers a gentle insight as to why they still are' Helen Davies, Sunday Times Chris works as a librarian in a small-town library in the south of England. This is the story of the library, its staff, and the fascinating group of people who use the library on a regular basis. We'll meet characters like the street-sleepers Brewer, Wolf and Spencer, who are always the first through the doors. The Mad Hatter, an elderly man who scurries around manically, searching for books. Sons of Anarchy Alan, a young Down's Syndrome man addicted to the American TV drama series. Startled Stewart, a gay man with a spray-on tan who pops in most days for a nice chat, sharking for good-looking foreign language students. And Trish, who is relentlessly cheerful and always dressed in pink - she has never married, but the marital status of everybody she meets is of huge interest to her. Some of the characters' stories are tragic, some are amusing, some are genuinely surreal, but together they will paint a bigger picture of the world we live in today, and of a library's hugely important place within it. Yes, of course, people come in to borrow books, but the library is also the equivalent of the village pump. It's one of the few places left where anyone, regardless of age or income or background, can wander in and find somebody to listen to their concerns, to share the time of day. Reading Allowed will provide us with a fascinating portrait of a place that we all value and cherish, but which few of us truly know very much about ...

The No-Nonsense Guide to Born Digital Content
This book offers a comprehensive, entry-level guide that focuses explicitly on how to collect and manage born-digital content for 'boots on the ground' practitioners. Libraries and archives of all sizes are collecting and managing an increasing proportion of digital content. Within this body of digital content is a growing pool of 'born-digital' content: content that has been created and has often existed solely in digital form. Providing continued, sustainable access to a wide array of born-digital content is a challenge for libraries and archives, particularly because of the broad and highly technical skills needed to build and sustain born-digital content management workflows. The No-Nonsense Guide to Born Digital Content provides an entry level how-to guide that aims to help ease inexperienced students and practitioners into this area. It explains step by step processes for developing and implementing born-digital content workflows in library and archive settings of all sizes and includes a range of case studies collected from small, medium and large institutions internationally. Including: the wide range of digital storage media and why this is different to, and similar to, existing content the various sources of born-digital content and how they are appraised and considered for collection retrieving and preparing content to allow it to be brought into the library or archive storage systems and applying archival arrangement philosophies description, preservation and access methods for designing workflows for born-digital collection processing strategies and philosophies to move forward as technologies change. This book will be useful reading for LIS and archival students and professionals who are working with, or plan to work with, born digital content. It will also be of interest to museum professionals, data managers, data scientists, and records managers.

Records, Information and Data
This dynamic book considers whether and how themanagement of records (and archives) differs from the management of information(and data). Can archives and records management still make adistinctive contribution in the 21st century, or are they now being dissolvedinto a wider world of information governance? What should be ourconceptual understanding of records in the digital era? What are the practicalimplications of the information revolution for the work of archivists andrecords managers?Geoffrey Yeo, a distinguished expert in the globalfield, explores concepts of 'records' and 'archives' and sets today'srecord-keeping and archival practices in their historical context. Heexamines changing perceptions of the nature and purpose of records managementand archival work, notions of convergence among information-relateddisciplines, and archivists' and records managers' attitudes to information andits governance. Starting with Peter Morville's dictum that 'when we tryto define information, we become lost in a hall of mirrors', Yeo considersdifferent understandings of the concept of 'information' and theirapplicability to the field of archives and records management. He alsolooks at the world of data science and data administration, and asks whetherand how far recent work in this area can enhance our knowledge of how recordsfunction and how they relate to the information universe.Key topics covered include:The keeping ofrecords: a brief historical overviewThinking aboutrecords and archives: the transition to the digitalArchivists,records managers and the allure of informationFinding a waythrough the hall of mirrors: concepts of informationRecords anddata Why records arenot (just) information; understanding records in the digital era.This thought provoking and timely book is primarilyintended for records managers and archivists, but should also be of interest toprofessionals in a range of information-related disciplines. In addressing theplace of record-keeping in contemporary information culture, it aims toprovide a balance of theory and practice that will appeal to practitioners aswell as students and academics around the world.

Cultures of the Countryside: Art, Museum, Heritage, and Environment, 1970-2015
This book traces the relationship between the museum and the micro-cultures of the countryside over the last 50 years. The period is one of extraordinary tensions and change for the countryside, as it has experienced widespread agricultural mechanisation, rural depopulation and changing demographics, the growth of environmental activism, and the development of the heritage industry. Global issues such as the political and social imperatives to tackle population growth and climate change have led to an increasing sense of a distributed responsibility for the world's welfare with strong local implications. Through all of this, the countryside is ever more under pressure, and of increasing importance as a healthy provider of more and more resources. How are these competing histories, visions and politics represented by the museum, and throughout the wider world of arts organisations and the heritage? To what extent can a response to a locality, as reflected in programmes of such bodies, be accompanied by responsibility for it? Is there room for the arts and the museum to engage actively not only in reflecting cultures but in shaping them? What are the opportunities for the import of creative and lateral thinking from different cultures, bringing new visions and means of understanding, and how is this happening? This book outlines some museum and artistic projects and enterprises which are attempting to introduce new ways of investigating, learning and creating cultures though engagement between localities, objects and people. At the core of the book is a description and analysis of findings from an East Anglian project, 'The Culture of the Countryside', which explored methods for starting with world art as a means for new cultural understandings to be formed, and from which themes emerged which were closely bound to different countryside landscapes, peoples and heritage.
